that did so much for this country, let us draw strength from those earlier struggles. first and foremost, let us remember that change has never been quick. change has never been simple or with without controversy. change depends on persistenceç. change requires determination. it took a full decade before the moral guidance of brown vs. board of education was translated ininto enforcement measures of the civil rights act and the voting rights act. those 10 long years did not lead dr. king to give up. he kept pushing, speaking, marching, until change finally came. [ applause ] >> the president: and then when even after the civil rights act and the voting rights act passed, african-americans still found themselves trapped in pockets ofç poverty across the country. dr. king didn't say those laws were a failure. he didn't say this is too hard. he didn't say let's settle for what we got and go home. instead, he said, let's take those victories and broaden our mission to achieve not just civil and political equality, but also economic justice. let's fight for a living wage and better school

dan rivers is in tripoli for us. dan, we're about to show our viewers of video of a bloody moammar gadhafi after the capture while he's still alive. what do you know about gadhafi's final moments? >> reporter: well, this video does shed some light on it. it's tough to watch. but i think it's important to have a look at this. you can clearly see that gadhafi is alive when you look at this footage. he is being led away. he looks like he's got a lot of blood on his face. but he is clearly alive. at this point. it seems then that at some point between this video being taken and a subsequent video being taken that he clearly died. now, whether he died of his injuries he sustained when shot, some sources have us believe or whether he was literally beaten to death by this mob of ntc troops sort of pistol whipped to death, we don't know. but clearly here, he seems alive. you get a real visceral sense from this footage of just how roughly he was handled here. naturally perhaps one can imagine that the passion is running so high, but also, i have to stop for that shooting there. but also a s

lawrence, live for us at the pentagon. we're talking 39,000 u.s. troops leaving iraq. as we heard the president say, being home for the holidays is certainly good news for folks here at home. but explain to me, though, we know that the u.s. and iraq didn't exactly see eye to eye with regard to an immunity issue because the u.s. wanted to have several thousand troops remain. >> that's right. there was a split, on both sides. there were some iraqi leaders who wanted a security of having a small u.s. force there. but ultimately it mainly came down to this issue of legal immunity. and what that means is, right now iraq and the u.s. have an agreement that american troops are not subject to iraqi law. they would fall under the uniform code of military justice right now. well, that agreement expires at the end of the year. and to set up a new agreement or to extend that agreement, iraq would have had to have agreed to grant that same immunity going forward. the iraqi politicians and parliament were not able to okay that or to agree to that and the u.s. government and by extension they co
